      Just a 10 minute drive from the city centre is the entrance to the Polokwane Game Reserve. Covering 3 250 hectares, this scenic reserve is one of the largest municipal reserves in South Africa.

      A part of the city, and yet not a part of the city, this game park with its unspoilt bushveld and meandering drives is home to 52 game species. Amongst the favourites are the rare white rhino, sable antelope and giraffe. The centre of the city has a large bronze statue of necking giraffe so the animals association with the city is a special one. The park is also the nesting place of approximately 200 bird species. It is a shining example of preservation of the threatened Pietersburg Plateau False Grassland and plant enthusiasts will discover 110 different grasses, approximately 280 flowering plants and 68 tree species. It is eco-tourism at its best.

      A day at rest is enjoying the game viewing, spectacular scenery and lunch at one of the glorious picnic sites. For the restless it is an ideal venue for mountain biking, hiking, and horse trails. Comfortable overnight accommodation is available with self catering chalets for families big and small. A well managed and well equipped caravan site is attached to the park.
